One Year #BlogBattle Celebration Week 53! Entries & Voting

So as I explained last week–here–we are doing #BlogBattle a little differently this week.

Of course, I feel like I’ve left out any newbies who would have liked to have joined today! So for you, it’s not too late! Write a story with the theme word: YEAR. You’ve got all day to post it. 🙂

Now, I hope you enjoy the music I’ve got playing for your enjoyment as you read some epic tales written throughout the course of the last year. Be sure to vote on your favorite once the poll goes live!

Battlers, here’s how to participate for Week 53:

  1. Choose one of your #BlogBattle stories from the past year
  2. Edit it however you would like
  3. Reblog/repost it on Tuesday, March 15th.
  4. Make sure you specify the genre and the theme word

Now, on to the stories!
